BFP Stories

Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives

BFP after MC and chemical

In Summer 2016 I was TTC for baby #2 and got pregnant the first month trying. Found out it was twins at 7 weeks and saw heartbeats. At a follow up ultrasound at 10 weeks it was discovered I had miscarried between 7-8 weeks (a missed miscarriage). I had a DNC and my body seemed to go back to semi normal cycles right away, and I was cleared to TTC again after my first period. My 2nd cycle TTC after the DNC, I got an early BFP at 11DPO but started spotting by 13DPO and tests were not getting darker, and a BFN on a digital. I got my period the next day and confirmed I had a chemical pregnancy. My 3rd cycle TTC after the chemical, I got another BFP! I'm currently 5.5 weeks. After the roller coaster 6 months we've had, it's hard to get excited or feel confident this one will stick around, but I figured I would share my BFP story nonetheless. I had loved reading them on here over these many months of TTC.

I typically have 29-30 day cycles and O around CD16. Even though I'd been successful in the past with conceiving without temping or using OPKs, time was wearing on me after 2 losses so this most recent cycle I started temping and used OPKs to confirm my O day.

CD16-17 - ovulation (fertility tracker and temps place O on CD17 but I think it happened late on CD16 from O pain)
CD21 - heartburn in the PM
CD22 - brown spotting when wiping, mild cramping (implantation??)
CD23 - diarrhea twice, mild menstrual-like cramping
CD26 - BFP on a wondfo

I've now had 4 BFPs in my life: 1 child, 2 losses and this current pregnancy. With 3/4 I had implantation spotting/cramping, heartburn and diarrhea as early symptoms before BFP.
